Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum

At Grove Street Primary & Nursery School we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which enables our children to learn and develop skills, attitudes and understanding in these areas of learning:

The prime areas:

  • Personal, Emotional and Social Development. (PSED)
  • Communication and Language. (CL)
  • Physical development

The specific areas are:

  • Mathematics.
  • Literacy.
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Art and Design

Throughout the EYFS we plan activities to give children learning experiences and opportunities to work towards the Early Learning Goals and prepare them for the National Curriculum. Teaching and learning will take place within the classroom and outside areas. Within these areas children will participate in a variety of activities, both with an adult and independently.

 At Grove Street Primary & Nursery School we seek to provide ‘a secure foundation through learning and development opportunities which are planned around the needs and interests of each individual child and are assessed and reviewed regularly’ (Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (2014))
